We have engaged a person to note do* fn the hour and miuute at which our bags are pv.t in the post office, and he will be prepared, when ,-equired, tp substantiate his notes by affidavit, if necessary.

While the bank* of theee State*, the law* of which require frequent exhibit* of their affair*, preserve from menth to month a uniform movement, the bank* of other 8ta'e* are compelled from time to time to curtail their operation*, whenever there i* any change in the financial policy of the Goveminent, or whenever any measure* affecting our commercial ay item are agitated in our legislature.

They are calculated to prevent any abrupt or any extensive expamion*, or whenever an under expanaion <Ki*t?, they have a tendency to produce a contraction. In thi* way they exert a very favorable and healthy influence upon commercial mattera. The change* in the financial policy of the Government and in the commercial ayitem of the country, about going into operation, will for a time caute a partial (tupenlion of buaine**, and give an opportunity to lho*e who h?v? been going ahead a little too faat, to ftrengthen ihtkmlm b#for? the nv order of thingi oomoi into - wlrtirr- TImm ntoUUmm mi to u w I trad* and deatroy wkiUnr ip*eulatlr* movement# m#jr | at th* time b* going on.

The more the act " to provide lor the better or? ganization of the Treasury, and for the collection, afe-keeping, transfer, arid disbursement of the public revenue," is examined, the diiliculty of putting it into effective operation, becomes mors apparent. A gentleman connected with the Tr*a lation, anil expresses fears that it will not, without amendment, nnswcr tho purposes designed. The bill provides no place of deposite for disbursing oilicers, except their own pockets; and this will be a serious inconvcnience, and without remedy. All the Treasury Department desired was a few olliees, to transact siicn business as is now performed by the depasito banks, and which are not provided for in the law. On ami after the first day of January next, in payment of public dues, gold and silver coin only, and Treasury notes can be received. Notes of specie-paying banks, arc. and will bo received at our eiiy post office, until the iirtt of January ; but, if for instance, my postage amounts to only four dollars and ninety-live cents, the postmaster will not now take a five dollar bill and give me a half-dimo in change, because this would constitute an " exchange of funds" not allowed by the act! and it would be declared a felony ! According to strict construction, after this year, if I go to the post ollice to pay for a newspaper postage, one or two cents, theclerk cannot receive the copper, because gold and silver, and Treasury notes, only can then be received. It will depend on the Department to give the icta comin >n-sei>se interpretation, and allow pennies to be rrceived for postages. The post office law recognizes rents for the payment of papers and letters, and those connected with tliis branch of the public service, tuto: au oatu 10 support iue laws 01 the post office department. How the inhibition as to "exchange of funds" is to be avoided, it i? for the Treasury Department to determine. It will require at least a month to frame regulations for currying the law into effect. Every section has already been dissected, and the inconsistencies exposed. Mr. Lromgoole, who brought forward the bill, gave it little consideration. It was sufficient for him that it originally came from Senator Silas Wright. The officers of the Treasury were not consulted. The Senate refused to amend it, ns Mr. Lewis desired ; and hence w* have an act worse than none at all. Many who voted lor the bill, did set, because they considered themselves pledged to the measure, and th?y wdl be pleased to learn that it cannot be put into perfect operation. For the last week I have noticod at least twenty inen lounging about the door of the Secretary of the Treasury. They take their station at an early hour The messenger b is become so familiar with their faces and their errand, that ho docs not conceive it to bi? consistent with his duty trt ?tf>rnnllv<li? nr'i tl?f> Si'f;rf?t:irv hv nruiouncinir that they are in waiting. It is impossible to intend to their petitions ; and Mr. Walker has adopted for his motto, the public business first, and oflice seekers next. Not unfrequemly the Secretary slips ont at a private door ; und on one occasion, in my presence, Captain Somebody hailed him several times, and hunt; to his skirts, finding oat papers and pressing his claims. He did not succeed, arid went away sorrowful.? Being in that department two weeks afterward?, I sav/ the same person still on the watch ior Mr. Walker. Finding it impossible to get a conference with the Secretary, those ol the olficeseekers who can write, send Mr. Walker notes, telling him it was not democratic to deny soeing his fellow citizens, and threatening complaints to the President as soon as ho comes home. Mr. Walker, of course, will mind this a great deal.? No one will deny that men have a right to seek ollice. But while this is admitted, the Secretary is not to be importuned, and lampooned. He is the most industrious man in the cabinet, if not naturally, necessarily so, from the extensive business appertaining to his department. In the language of Mr. Clay, as once applied to Mr. Woodbury, "he work* like a beaver." Gendemen, let Mr. Walker alone for the present. When he finds leisure, he will see you all at his room. If you all desire to see him, go to the church ia which he worships. Important despatches have been received from our Home Squadron, in the Gulf. The news of Santa Anna's return to Mexico is confirmed. It reported as the opinion of the four members of the cabinet now in this e.itv, that a change of government in Mexico will facilitate a negotiation of peace. There may be some ground for this beliel, but it appears from the active preparations now being made, and the improved condition of the Mexican finances, that the war is to be prosecuted with vigor. With the bitter feelings of the ! Mexicans against the people of the Unittu States, the return of Santa Anna cannot be hailed with favor bv them, if the result is to be a policy sisni lar to tfmt which causeil the overthrow of llerrera's administration, and rallied the military and citizens in favor of Paredes, who obtained |>ower on the pledge to prosecute the war, and not reopen negotiation*. .Santa Anna, it is well known, ! is notinclined to peace. It is by the war be anticipates consolidating the different interests and , classes of that country in his favor. However, if his return will facilitate the negotiation of peace, this fact was ascertained bctoro he left Vera Cruz, and he must have been encouraged, pre* viously to this course, by influences of which we know nothing with certainty. Mr. Dallas lias accepted of an invitation to par* take of a dinner, to be given by his democratic friends at Warren ton, Va. next Thursday. Felix. i'liri^LDKr.pniA, Aug. 24, 1846.
